Zona Match; Online Matchmaking Community Based on Your Zona Personality Assessment Launches

TACOMA, Wash. -September 16, 2004- Panspective, Inc. announces the launch of Zona Match, an online matchmaking community featuring the Company's Your Zona personality assessment system. The Your Zona system is based on a 3-dimensional model and is the most advanced personality assessment and matching tool ever built. All Zona Match member profiles include their Zona Test results and, as a result, finding compatibility is quick and easy.

Zona Match features other industry exclusives, such as Time Balancer, a graphical tool created to allow users to quickly assess someone's lifestyle. Gone are profile questions that allow people to give bland and undifferentiated answers. Focus groups were used to develop profile questions that force members to provide thoughtful and introspective responses.

Zona Match will minimize "stale profiles" and eliminate the confusion of multi-tier membership plans by offering a simple pay-as-you-go plan. Members use credits to contact other members via a secure anonymous messaging system. All members are required to purchase credits in order to initially post a profile on Zona Match. People can get started for as little as $5. There are no monthly fees, which means if a member finds that special someone and does not use the system for several months, no costs are incurred.

Panspective is well aware of the competitive nature of online matchmaking and the tendency of users to gravitate toward websites with the most profiles. Therefore, in order to compete, the Company focused relentlessly on the relationship aspect of matchmaking. Visitors and members quickly recognize the preeminent online matchmaking experience.

About Your Zona

The Your Zona personality system is the culmination of over 2,000 years of personality theories. The system offers a superior experience due to the fact that it was built for both personality assessment and matching. At the heart of the system is a 3-dimensional model that is unrivaled matchmaking.

While most personality assessments are built on 2-dimensional models or horizontal topography, Your Zona combines both horizontal and vertical philosophies. For more than 1,800, years personality theorists have identified personality traits that are static over a person's lifetime. Then, Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) developed a Hierarchy of Needs Theory, which charted a person's development (vertical topography) through various levels in life. This was followed by Dr. Clare Grave's Spiral Dynamic Theory. which charts cognitive evolution for both societies and individuals.

Your Zona combines the best of horizontal and vertical models, wrapping them in a fun, easy to use package. The Zona test is comprised of 26 questions and takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Once someone learns their own zona, the system recommends the most compatible zonas in the areas of romance, personal growth and professional partnerships. The test is free and available is currently available in English, Russian and Chinese (simplified). The URL is
